2016 Ford Expedition red vs 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

The 2016 Ford Expedition vs the 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

The 2016 Ford Expedition is a legend in the making. Offering Bradley and Peotone drivers power and sophistication, passenger room and cargo volume, trim choice and affordability, the Expedition is bound to cater to any driver preference and passenger need, while also coming equipped with a range of perks and amenities—a SYNC 3 tech-system, a moonroof, and a lavishly accoutered interior, for example—that prove to drivers that with the Expedition, Ford has outdone even itself. But you don’t have to take our word for it to see just how special this new SUV is: simply compare the Expedition to one of its competitors, the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban, to how this new Ford excels.

Trims and Prices

Bradley and Peotone drivers appreciate freedom of choice in determining the best SUV—and getting the best price—and choice is just what the Expedition offers you, in spades:

The 2016 Ford Expedition

The 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

With only two options, the Tahoe simply can’t compare to the Expedition:

  • The base-line LS trim starts at $50,000.
  • The upper-level LT trim enters the market at $55,030.

Sublime Power

Now add to the mix a herculean engine capable of almost unrivaled towing capacity and impressive horsepower

The 2016 Ford Expedition

The Expedition runs on a mighty 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, allowing it to realize 365 hp and produce 420 lb-ft of torque. But where the Expedition truly distinguishes itself is towing capacity: while a conventionally outfitted Expedition can tow 6,600 lbs, Expeditions equipped with the optional Heavy-Duty Trailer Towing Package can pull a maximum payload of 9,2000 lbs.

The 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

With its Gas V8 engine, the Tahoe can get 355 hp, but it is only capable of generating 383 lb-ft of torque, and it can only lug 8,300 lbs, meaning that Bradley and Peotone drivers who rely on their SUV to transport heavy loads should choose the Ford over the Tahoe.

The Space Race

SUVs are popular for two reasons above all: they provide phenomenal power, and they promise ample interior room for passengers and cargo. Certainly, the Expedition eclipses the Tahoe in the area of power, but it also equals the Tahoe is seating capacity and outdoes it when it comes to interior cargo volume:

The 2016 Ford Expedition

The Expedition gives families ample passenger volume, offering 8 seats, but it also provides 130.8 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the first seats, allowing drivers from Peotone and Bradley to banish worries about insufficient room for luggage on their next trip up to Chicago.

The 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

The Tahoe also boasts seating for 8 passengers, but only at a cost: whereas the Expedition gives drivers abundant cargo room, the Tahoe only offers 94.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row of seats.

Safety First

Finally, the Expedition promises a remarkably safe drive to Bradley- and Peotone-area drivers, who can count on the SUV’s ironclad safety system for protection, whether they’re just driving around town, heading to the mall, or taking the long drive to St. Louis.

The 2016 Ford Expedition

Among many other devices, the Expedition gives drivers

  • Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems, which indicate the presence of threatening objects in front of or behind the vehicle
  • BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert, which alerts you to invisible vehicles that are about to cross your path, allowing you to respond appropriately
  • A Rear View Camera, which simplifies parallel parking
  • Finally, the Expedition’s crash-prevention system has earned national plaudits, having received five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

The 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe

With Rear Park Assist, a Rear Vision Camera, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, the Tahoe also provides comparably effective safety systems, buts crash-prevention system was only award four stars from the NHTSA.
